For the last months, I've been unsure as to whether this is worthy of a full topic, but I've decided it is.

Queen's Gold box set "Greatest Hits: I & II" continue to be one of Barnesandnoble.com's best-sellers.

They arrange best-selling lists by genre's; for the last few months, every time I go to see the best-sellers for Hard Rock, Album Rock, and Heavy Metal, the Gold Box set is consistently at the top of the list.

This is a list that's updated every hour, by the way.

The ones below it change. Sometimes it's "Forty Licks," The Who's "Ultimate Collection," "BAck in Black," "The Wall," "London Calling" and other assorted things by Jimi Hendrix, U2, Rod Stewart, Metallica, Styx and others.

But Queen is consistently on top.

This is an AMERICAN site, mind you.

Don't believe me?

http://music.barnesandnoble.com/search/results.asp?TYPE=C&CAT=1000851&userid=LP0mRCwAPq <-- Glam Rock; at the moment, SIX of the top TEN are Queen albums.

And for Pop/Rock, they're number SEVEN!!!

Honestly, I think that's great! Especially 60% of the glam rock category being Queen. I'm glad to see more people here in the US liking Queen. :)


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Yeah, I've been keeping track of this for several months now. (since Summer, actually.) They continue to be on top.
